Social Security Numbers
Most of us keep too much of the paper that comes into our homes.
Be wary of anyone that wants you to sign a blank return or who refuses to put their name and Social Security number on your return.
When you think of identity theft, chances are you don’t think your government is part of the problem.
You need to protect your numbers. Credit card numbers, ATM numbers, Social Security numbers, and pin numbers.
ID theft is one of the fastest growing crimes, and thieves are preying on children more and more often.
Your name, address, Social Security number, date of birth, credit card numbers, ATM numbers and checking account numbers are floating around everywhere.
This is National Consumers Protection Week.
All families discuss money. Sometimes it’s the screaming and yelling kind of discussion or if you plan them better the quieter but still awkward discussion.
This is a frantic time of year; the pressure to create the perfect holiday wears us down.
